He said: “The ConnectKey-enabled i-Series of MFPs allows businesses to go beyond printing, scanning, faxing and copying, and gives channel partners the tools they need to capture new recurring revenue streams.”

Ready-to-use apps accessible from the i-Series MFP interface include @PrintByXerox App, a free mobile cloud printing solution that enables employees and visitors to print securely from any mobile or network-connected device via a single email address; and a QR Code App that lets users print from and scan to a ConnectKey-enabled MFP by scanning a QR code with their phone/tablet.

Mobile Link is another useful app for iOS and Android devices. It enables users to create onetouch, automated workflows on a mobile device so that they can remotely control a Xerox MFP and transmit documents to fax, email and cloud-hosted services like Box, Dropbox and Google Drive. A new camera capture feature lets users route photos of documents taken with a mobile device directly to relevant departments.

In addition, the Xerox App Gallery is now pre-loaded directly on the user interface of i-Series MFPs, giving users easy access to a variety of apps from Xerox and its partners. These include the new Xerox Easy Translation Service app, which translates documents scanned or captured on a smartphone/tablet and uploaded to a web portal into more than 35 languages.

Partners can tailor the user interface and automate customers’ business processes using Xerox App Studio 3.0 or, for more sophisticated customisation, the Personalised Application Builder (PAB) program
